What are Gutter Screens For?
Gutter screens help keep your gutters free of dirt and debris. Clean gutters help prevent water damage to your house that can be caused by clogged gutters or downspouts, so you’ll want to keep them as clean as possible, and gutter screens can help you do that. There are a variety of gutter screens you can use on your gutter system. Consult with your local roofer to find the ones that are ideal for your home or commercial building.
Benefits of gutter screens include:
• Gutter screens prevent leaves, twigs, and other debris from falling into your gutters, thus allowing rain water to flow freely throughout your gutter system.
• You can choose a type of gutter screen that works best for your home or business. Some attach under your shingles, some are solid shields, and some snap under your gutters.
• While gutter screens are not completely maintenance free, they will certainly cut down on the work of cleaning out gutters, and if you pay to have this done, these will save you money, as well.
• While some debris is still likely to collect on top of your gutter screens, it is much, much easier to clean it off, than trying to clean inside your gutters.
• Gutter screens can be added to the gutters you already have.
• Rodents and birds won’t be able to build nests in your gutters.
• They help extend the life of your gutters preventing them from rusting prematurely due to moisture that is caused from standing debris on the gutter surfaces.
